AUK Receives MEW Energy Conservation for the Sixth Consecutive Year

For the 6th consecutive year, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) received the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) Award for Energy Conservation. AUK has been receiving MEW awards since 2008 on their collaborative efforts with the ministry on energy conservation.

Abolghasem Alavinejad, Director of Campus Services at AUK, commented on this achievement saying "We must think globally, and act locally to save energy and support the MEW energy conservation team".

The MEW relationship with AUK started when a team of ministry representatives visited the AUK campus in 2007 to inspect and provide advice on their energy conservation campaign. The visitors were impressed by how the Campus Services Department at AUK had already been applying energy conservation practices including, using light-emitting diodes, controlling the usage, and preventing energy loss. According to Alavinejad, this year AUK has taken further steps by replacing all campus outdoor lightings with low consumption LED lights, and changing all the air-conditioning systems filters with advanced foam filters.

In continuation of its energy conservation efforts, the campus services Department at AUK maintains collaboration with MEW by sharing experience, data, and information on energy conservation methods.
